    Thanks Baloo, Okinawa does have numerous shops that sell fishing related items. I'll definitely consider visiting those shops and see what they have.

    Rev Handles

    Hello everyone, I need some assistance. In the past I purchased a Rev II from someone and I also received a set of 11" handles with it. I never used them because I already have another set all ready to go. Recently, I took them (handles) out of the bag and put them to use. Initially, they felt different and after looking closely, I noticed that the type of foam cushioning is different. It wasn't the normal firm foam cushioning that I am accustom to. They are very soft and after using them with my shockwave, I could feel the tubes of the handles directly with the palm of my hands through the foam cushioning. Completely different feelings all throughout the flight. Now, I don't just want to get rid of them. I am looking to see if I could purchase the correct type of foam and replace the ones that are currently on the handles as they truly feel ackward. Any ideas, thoughts, guidance from anyone. By the way, my geographical location is a challenge as I am currently located in Okinawa Japan. Thank you in advance!

    SDT 2.8 Power Kite (6/10/11)

    Hello everyone and thank you for all the congrats and well wishes in advance for a speedy recovery after trying this power kite. It's typhoon season here in Okinawa where the winds really pick up. On the safety side, I'll keep it locked up and only fly it when the wind is calm and not overwhelmingly strong. I am certain that I'll be seeking for some advice well in advance before I even break it open out on the field and figure out how this thing works. Again, thank you to all and to for having such a fun place to talk and meet other people who share the same interests even when you're miles away from home. Marvin
